Liable Parties in Dog Bite Cases
If you have been bitten by a dog, it is important to seek medical attention
right away. If a dog bite is not treated properly, an even worse injury
or infection may occur. After you have been treated, we recommend that
you contact our firm as soon as possible so we can immediately begin gathering
all information regarding your situation and building the strongest case
possible. Although it is most common for the dog's owner to be found
liable for the dog bite, there are other times when different parties
are found liable.
Possible responsible parties for dog bite cases:
Animal owner: anyone held responsible for the care or custody of the animal
Parents of minors: if the dog owner is a minor, legal action may be taken against the minor's parents
Property owner: if the property owner allowed the dog onto their property, they may be
Landlord: if the landlord knew that a tenant owned a dangerous animal, they may
be held liable
